Thanks, George, Hugo S. has an excellent website for the early pioneers and it is highly recommended. But there are some issues with Russell Hunting which are not easily solved, especially with his family constellation and a 'missing' obituary. My article on him will appear in early June and I am always pleased to hear more. As many already know, he was arrested in 1896 (per Anthony Comstock) for violating some NYS laws ('Actionable Offenses').
